Win a pony from {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 5:09PM I liked this site better before it had so many readers! =D

Enter to win a Creative World of Warcraft wireless headset {WoW}

Sep 16th 2009 3:25PM I, too, would love to win!

BigRedKitty: Spirit Beast {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2008 2:09PM The real question is, when you found him, did you just abandon your current pet and not risk a trip back to the stables? Meanie!

Ozzy Osbourne and Steve Van Sandt in two new TV commercials {WoW}

Nov 20th 2008 12:46PM I'm pretty sure Ozzy's been nerfing himself for years.

Featured Download: Wrath Downloader [Update] {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 7:36PM It's also worth noting that after you copy all the files in the (generally) c:\program files\world of warcraft directory, if things don't work, you can run the repair.exe in that directory to re-download anything that may have been corrupted in the move.

It's REALLY nice that they've allowed this since the WoW directory can get huge and the install is a huge pain (especially if you're installing Classic and BC sequentially).

Ask a Beta Tester: Draenei, titles, and more glyph discussion {WoW}

Sep 1st 2008 12:39PM I don't remember the source, but I believe a Blue posted that swapping out glyphs was expected to be rather cheap. I'm thinking like 5-10g each (after the market settles down a few months in at least).

There's cheap enough that they gave swaping glyphs a one-hour cooldown.

The new Misery {WoW}

Aug 31st 2008 3:22PM From MMO-Champion:

"Misery (Tier 8 ) changed to 3 ranks and your Shadow Word: Pain, Mind Flay and Vampiric Touch spells also increase the chance for harmful spells to hit by 1/2/3%."

The key word in that being "also increase" not "instead increase".

Perhaps MMO-Champion is wrong but it's not as bad as you seem to think.

Characters for iPhone updated to 2.0 {WoW}

Aug 18th 2008 8:22PM *sigh* I was going to make an iPhone app just like this one (but better than version 1... same as version 2). Unfortunately for me, my Beta key came the day after I started and so I'm only 3/4ths of the way done. With this one updated, however, I'll have to rethink the whole thing =/

Mounts now welcome in Booty Bay {WoW}

Aug 12th 2008 4:26PM I agree with the modded down post. Where you can and cannot mount in the beta is very screwed up right now. This is just as likely a bug as intentional.

For reference, you can also mount in places like Ramps. It seems less likely Blizzard would want you to mount in an instance. But you cannot currently mount in any major city. One's a bug, the others could likely be bugs too. Don't get your hopes up.

Or of course, they could just be making mounting available everywhere!

Ask WoW Insider: An early disappointment? {WoW}

Aug 11th 2008 6:33PM I can't say I agree to a single point. I'm very excited about the druid changes.

Overall, druid tanking looks to be buffed. No more defense, "Oh s*&%" button, bye-bye crushing blows. I wouldn't say we'll become the new de-facto main tank over warriors (or whatever) but I can't imagine it any worse than it is now.

Hybrids are, in general, getting big buffs. Balance druids are getting buffed (so they say, not my thing). Pallies are looking to finally be able to kill stuff. Shaman totem/buff changes and the changes to shared crits/hit should help enhancement dps. Hybrids seem to be as strong as ever (And I have a pally, druid, and shaman at 70 so I'm certainly glad about this).

The alchemy changes were rescinded last I checked. (Chain pots are back, although I agreed with the original decision).

As to Death Knights? I'm not sure about live but I just got my beta key this last week and I can say I'm very excited about them whereas I wasn't previously... They are just hella fun to play!

Lifebloom nerf. Yeah, I love lifebloom. It's a great spell. But blizzard is adding two more heals in the resto spellbook to make up for that. This is almost the more disapointing stat as I'm (according to them) one of the few druids to use all my 4 healing spells often enough.
